Many unsuccessful transformations were derailed well before they were completed. Are there any early red flags that might save a project from failure if spotted and acted upon quickly enough?
Indeed, it’s widely agreed that one of the most significant early signs that a transformation is doomed is a lack of support from employees. Research conducted last year by the Everest Group found that just over two-thirds of firms that had attempted a digital transformation had failed to achieve their desired outcomes. Of these, 58% blamed internal resistance to change as a major cause.
